We display artwork created by local artists from Redditch and the surrounding area. Most of the artwork will be available to purchase.  The artwork will be in a range of different mediums and styles.  From acrylics, resin, drawing and watercolours to figurative, landscapes and abstract..Something for everyone!

FOLLOW THE RIVER -  An Exhibition exploring the  nature and heritage in the Arrow Valley Country Park

Throughout June this year embroidery artist Hanny Newton ran a series of art workshops at Forge Mill Needle Museum and “Your Ideas” Youth Group. Using traditional embroidery techniques such as couching and goldwork the
group created artworks that “sample” the nature of the Arrow Valley. Inspired by the patterns of needle displays in the museum collection the group collected natural objects from the landscape and sewed them onto canvas to create these beautiful artworks.

Hanny has herself created new artworks inspired by the needle collection and these are exhibited here for the first time.

These workshops were part of Scour: the Museum in the Landscape art project taking place at Forge Mill and in the Arrow Valley Park this year. This project run by Keith Ashford and Elizabeth Turner explores how contemporary art can both draw inspiration from historical contexts and throw new light on them; linking the past with present day environments in engaging if sometimes challenging ways.
